"If you understand who Christ is, you understand the totality of existence." In this unique 22-CD album recorded live on retreat, Adyashanti explores how the story of Jesus represents many facets of the path of spiritual awakening. Referencing biblical gospels and passages, he illustrates how Jesus' life not only demonstrates an awakening beyond the false self to our true divinity, but also how Jesus portrays the embodiment of divinity in human form. Through talks and dialogues with retreatants about their awakening process, Adyashanti also draws parallels between Christian and Zen stories as he helps to uncover lost jewels of Christianity.
